Mt. Haguro during the wintertime was beautiful. The hike is easy enough that people would stop by after work to “climb” Hagurosan. I have seen girls hike with heels. Since it was winter, there were not many people hiking. It was peaceful and calm. However, the dangerous part was climbing the stairs. Climbing up was not the difficult part. Coming down was a bit scary. The stairs were steep and covered in snow. I slipped a few times. It would have been easier if I had a sled. It was my second time here. But it is always fun coming back again.
